Future Proof – Free Webinar Series

The world around us is changing so fast it’s difficult to know what our future holds. But there are clues everywhere! This monthly webinar series will keep you in touch with our future – what’s ahead, what it means for us, and how to stay ahead of the game.

What will you learn?

In each webinar, I’ll cover an important topic about the future – for example, the shift of power to Asia, the changing workplace, healthcare technology, the shift to customer-centric business, big data, and more. This is not just theory; I’ll also give you practical examples and ideas for you to future-proof your organisation, teams, and career.

How to register

The webinars are free, once a month, at 11am Australian Eastern Time. Each webinar is just 30 minutes long, with a short presentation by me, and some time for Q&A.

When you register, you’ll get automatic e-mail reminders before each webinar, so you don’t miss any. You’re registering for the entire series, but there’s no obligation to attend every webinar (of course).

(When you register, you can also see the webinar time in your own time zone)
